When my family bought the Hopping Hare in 2006 our aim was to create an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, somewhere just a bit different. A place to dine, stay or meet up and relax with friends, family or colleagues. We didn't want it to be stuffy, intimidating or over the top. We set about creating luxurious rooms, a subtle, sophisticated bar with a great selection of quality drinks and a restaurant offering some of the best food to be found in Northampton. As a family owned and operated business, we set the standards on service, value for money, atmosphere and personality. No detail has been overlooked in creating a hotel, restaurant and bar in Northampton with an individual blend of 21st-century chic, high standards and a laid back friendly feel that we are sure you'll begin to notice as soon as you step inside. We've got to know some of our guests well because they come back time after time. In fact, 2010 saw the completion of an extension to the hotel to meet increased demand for accommodation from a growing clientele. My team and I would love to welcome you to stay for brunch, lunch, dinner or just a drink. Once the Hopping Hare is on your radar we guarantee you'll be back. David George, General Manager

Stopped unplanned on a road trip for the evening and decided to dine. Had not booked but after a short wait they had a table for us. The menu sold us for dinner with interesting flavour combo’s. Went for the Beef with beef fat crumble and the Hake cooked in marmite butter. Well

I visited the Hopping Hare with a group of friends for some drinks and a meal. We found the food to be good and we were well looked after by the staff. I had previously been to this pub a few years back and it was a much improved experience.

My husband and I decided to enjoy a nice evening meal out. Having taken the time to dress for the occasion, and looking forward to quite a nice evening, we were met with shoddy service which deteriorated as the evening progressed. I have never before had an evening ruined by the

Dear Gabriel, Thanks for your enquiry. We are convenient for the town centre (c 2.5 miles) but not really within walking distance. If you decide to stay at The Hopping Hare a taxi is the answer. Kind regards, David.
